Straying animals, blocked sewage line and roads full of potholes can be a few identification marks for Sector 30, which also houses a number of high-rise condominiums and corporate offices.

According to the residents of the colony which is situated just of the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway, the area has been a breeding ground for pigs, monkeys and other animals. For motorists, maneuvering though the potholes is the only option to reach one's destination.

Residents say despite repeated complaints they are yet to see a hope of respite from their plight. The sector comprises around 225 plots of the Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda), besides some high rise buildings like Uniworld and Jalvayu Tower. But the moment one steps out of home, the locality talks about the apathy of the administration.

Residents alleged that the sector looks like pigsty rather than a well laid out sector. Further the problem of monkeys compelled the children to stay indoors as the sector has witnessed cases when monkeys have bite the residents too. Safety is another issue of concern.

Blocked sewage drain is a major concern for the residents.

The authority, however, says complaints are taken care of.

"For sewage problem, we attend complaints on regular basis. Residents can approach our complaint office in Sector 31. We have prepared an estimate of Rs48 lakh for carpeting of roads in the area,” said SK Kwatra, sub-divisional officer, Huda.
